Blueberry Scone Recipe

Since I'm picking fresh blueberries in my backyard, thought I would
share one of my favorite recipes. Note: Although recipe says to
grease cookie sheet, I prefer using parchment paper, makes clean up
easier and scones don't stick!
Blueberry Scones
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter, cold and cut into pieces
1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1/3 cup heavy cream
2 eggs, lightly beaten
Cream and sugar for tops of scones
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet and set
aside. In a large bowl, sift together flour, 3 tablespoons sugar,
baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry blender, or two knives, cut in
butter until the largest pieces are the size of small peas. Stir in
blueberries and zest. Using a fork, whisk together cream and eggs in a
liquid measuring cup. Make a well in the center of dry ingredients and
pour in cream mixture. Stir lightly with fork just until dough comes
together.
Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead a few times to mix
well. Pat dough into a 6-inch square about 1 1/4 inches thick. Using a
floured knife, cut into four 3-inch squares. Cut squares in half on
the diagonal to form eight triangles. Transfer to prepared baking
sheet. Brush tops with cream and sprinkle with sugar. Bake until
golden brown, 20 to 22 minutes.

That sounds like an excellent recipe, but for those of us who are still watching our fat consumption, here is the scone recipe which I frequently make:
Blue Ribbon Yogurt Scones ---------------------------
2 1/2 cups flour 1/3 cup sugar 3 Tbsp cornstarch 1 Tbsp baking powder 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 egg 1 cup plain or vanilla nonfat yogurt 1/4 cup vegetable oil 1 tsp vanilla 1 cup blueberries
Heat oven to 400 deg F.
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, cornstarch, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Mix dry ingredients well.
In another bowl, beat egg. Combine yogurt, oil, vanilla and egg. Blend well.
Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until flour mixture is moistened. Gently stir in berries.
With floured hands, working on a floured surface, shape dough into an 8-inch flat round cut into eight wedges, or into eight 3-inch rounds.
Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 deg F for 15 to 20 minutes.
Serve warm.
This recipe can also be made with chopped figs, chopped apricots, raisins, dried berries, etc. It is an adaptation of a recipe from Sun-Diamond Growers of California, the fig people.
